Weird, I know, but this is my one chance to get a salad as a meal in today, so I’m taking it. Leftovers from last night’s dinner made the prep super easy.

Yummy. I used up some leftover lemon citronette from yesterday’s dinner. Lunch was simply a bed of mixed greens, lots of garbanzo beans, a very juicy navel orange, a big fistful of cilantro, some quartered mushrooms, the zest from the orange, and some sliced shallot. I’d forgotten how much I love orange in salad.

Ah, this was good. My first citronette since starting this challenge. This salad is much lighter than some of my meals–perfect dinner since I had a burger with the kids for lunch…I love mint and lemon. I love grapes and walnuts. Toss some mushrooms in as delightful flavor sponges, and pile the bowl high with mixed baby greens–really perfect.

No pictures. I feel guilty counting this one, since I used blue cheese dressing I didn’t make. Field trip with the kids to the NASA Ames Research Center robotics lab today meant eating at the cafeteria, and coming home to tired to eat anything but leftovers.

So, a kitchen sink salad bar salad lunch at NASA was my only salad today. Mixed greens, garbanzo and kidney beans, shredded beets, cucumbers, a hard boiled egg, mushrooms, sunflower seeds, and tomatoes. With blue cheese dressing.

I’m definitely looking forward to a homemade salad tomorrow!

This was an experiment. My dad showed up with a gorgeous, ripe pineapple. I had baby kale in the fridge. My miso soup eating son provided me with half a block of savory firm tofu. Add avocado, mushrooms, rice wine vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil, and I was set. Yum. A little weird, but I really enjoyed the pineapple and tofu, and they worked well with the earthy baby kale.
